Rox Pro-Offset Riser for KLR

I'm considering these and was looking for someone else who might have mounted them up.

http://www.happy-trail.com/Rox-Pro-O...R-B12POE).aspx

I'm trying to avoid a short cable situation. These look like a decent solution as they move the bars forward and up, which seems like it would be a minimal change in overall cable length required. Also like them because it allows me to use 7/8" bars until I get around to swapping for fat bars.

Thanks!
GW

I have the 2in Pivoting risers on my XRL. I have zero complaints. Much better than stock. I was also able to put Renthal Fat Bars on. Perfect handlbar position..I would highly recommend them.

I have some that are approximately the same offset, but a different brand. No cable issues. Also, there may be different ways to route your cables that will work better with the risers and help reduce binding.

This is assuming you have an approximately stock handlebar shape... not a high-bend or something

Heck the stockers have a fairly high bend in them already! I hear what you're saying though. Initially I'll leave the stockers on but I have some nicer fat bars laying around I'd like to eventually get installed.

Thanks for the feedback.
